Conti Inspired Activities for Beginners/Adults on weather/time/dates

(0)
These activities are based on the Gianfranco Conti method of teaching, Included are sentence builders on weather, time and dates, pyramid translation, no snakes no ladders exercise, a samply homework exercise as well as an oral ping pong exercise. I have used the course book Facon de Parler 1 as a basis for this exercise but tweaked the vocabulary a bit, so you can still use the activities without having the coursebook. I have also included a sample basic lesson plan to give you ideas on how to use the activities. I use this with adults but you can equally use the resources with children beginning the topics of weather, dates and time.

Conti Inspired Intermediate B1 French Activities on Television Adult Learners/A Level/GCSE

(0)
This is a series of activities I have used with great success with my Intermediate French (B1) adult learners. I used it over a series of 3 x 2 hour lessons, starting with the sentence builder and doing lots of speaking and listening activities with whiteboards (see Gianfranco Conti/ Steve Smith’s blogs on these) to embed the vocab initially. Then we move on to activities such as the oral Ping Pong and Pyramid Translations to further automise and embed the key language. The dialogue activity also encourages the learner to use new vocab by recycling the vocab in the sentence builder. The final activity was the dialogue cards where the learners are encouraged to speak more independently, either using their own knowledge and/or with support from the sentence builder. There is also a homework exercise which the students can do at home. My learners have found these exercises to be extremely useful to build knowledge and confidence and I hope yours will too. Bon courage!
